What Happened To...Part IV: Marc Methot

Tyler HillAnalyst IAugust 15, 2008

For  at least one more day I continue my What Happened To... series. Some people may say have never heard of this next guy but trust me, he should be in the NHL.

                Marc Methot, another long shot drafted in the 6th round 168thoverall in the 2003 entry draft, by the Columbus Blue Jackets. Methot was a member of the dominate London Knights in the OHL.

                Methot was never an ofensive threat, but this 6’2’’ defenseman proved that he could make it count in his own end. His first season with the Knights Methot finished with an even +/-, not great, but not bad.

                It was Marc’s second year that he came through, he would finish with 11 points and was a plus 39, this shows just little of what Methot was capable of on the blue-line. After being drafted so late, Marc made adjustments to his game. He would finish his third and final regular season with the Knight at plus 52. In an additional four Mamorial Cup games where Methot collected four points and was a plus 6.

                In 2005-2006 Methot played his first games in the American Hockey League, He played 70 of the total 80 games Syracuse with  he had 13 points and 75 penalty minutes. The Blue Jackets called him up in 2006-2007 season where he played 20 games and was a plus 5, that same season in the AHL he played 59 games and 16 points.

                Surprisingly he played only 9 games this year, all were with  the Jackets. So what happened to Marc Methot after these games he did not return to Syracuse, and as far as I know was not injured so what happened to him. If anyone does know please tell me.

                Tomorrow on “What happened to...”I will look at Alexander Oveckin ;-)

                Thats a Joke.
